GiFT 2012 was the flagship event in the annual Hokkaido University Sustainability Weeks. Four young researchers from within Hokkaido University working on the front lines to find ways to create “A Future Society Offering Peace of Mind for All,” which was the theme of the 2012 Sustainability Weeks, gathered at the then two-year old GiFT.

On October 6th, 2012, the four presented about their cutting-edge research to a world audience of a hundred via YouTube Live at the brand-new communication space, “Media Court,” in the university library. The number of YouTube views reached 1,068 by the 30th of November, 2012.
